closing. now domestically. why the higher alert here in america? >> well, quite frankly, martha, because this threat was so specific as to how enormous it was going to be and also there's certain dates given, but it didn't specify where it's going to be and the assumption is that it's probably most likely to happen in the middle east at or about one of the embassies but there's no guarantee of that at all. it basically could be in europe, it could be in the united states, it could be a series of combined attacks, the same concept as the 2006 liquid explosive planned attacks, whether there are going to be a series of attacks carried out almost simultaneously, so we're ready for everything. this is what it's about and the administration i think has tried to first with the embassies, then with the global travel advisory and also letting state and local governments know over the last several days of the nature of this threat that so we can be on guard so this is a wake-up call. al qaeda is stronger than it was before 9/11 because it's mutated and it spread and it's spread in different direct
